Dr Adhya gave a clear overview and appraisal of my condition. I have a good understanding now of what my medications are; and have had treatment plan developed to improve my health. This is all complicated around having to operate remotely also, due to the issues surrounding COVID 19. I have had written feedback in a timely manner and have had the reassurance of Dr Adhya answering questions if required.
I found Dr Shaumik a man that listened to all my problems and made me feel that finally I was getting someone that actually was going to positively help me. Since my visit he has kept in touch and that has really reassured me since the health service at this particular time (Covid-19) pandemic is overwhelmed and not available to answer my concerning questions when needed. This very pleasant young man has made a big difference to my wellbeing and I am extremely thankful.
Dr Adhya has a very pleasant, unhurried manner. He was thorough in taking my (complicated!) medical history and discussing treatment options. He gave me plenty of time to ask questions and his answers were reassuring. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others seeking a cardiologist.
Dr Shaumik Adhya was friendly and approachable. He was thorough in checking my symptoms and explained the results to me in terms I could understand. I would certainly recommend him.
Unfortunately not the outcome I wanted because I did not have my ECG's from Gran Canaria so he could not treat or help me until he can review the ECG's which I am at the moment trying to get. I had a very frightening experience with the Tachycardia and I just feel I need some answers and hope he will be able to help me in the near future and by the way the consultant fees are quite high for a first appointment with no outcome.
Dr Shaumik Adhya
I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Please do get in touch when you get the ECG's or let me know if you can't get them so we can work out the best way forward to help you. I've now set up a free Skype clinic with short appointments if you wanted to use that service.
My consultations with Dr Adhya were very informative and enlightening . He gave me great insights into my condition and confidence that it could be controlled .
Excellent pre-appointment service, consultation on time and comprehensive including follow up - excellent
Dr Adhya is an excellent consultant throughout all of the stages of the consultant appointments he was courteous, polite and explained throughly all the appointments/treatments that were going to happen.
I was able to make the appointment for tests on Friday afternoon for a Monday morning consultation followed by the tests directly following the consultation. By 14:30 I had received a clear summary email from Dr Adhya with the results of the three tests together with confirmation that my results are normal. I am pressed for time due to some upcoming treatment so this urgency was gratefully appreciated. The consultation was thorough with family history being taken & we stepped through general health & MS-related symptoms in some detail also. Dr Adhya was clear in his questions & in his answers to my questions. Dr Adhya requested a chaperone for the consultation which was much appreciated. The appointment was not hurried and I felt that even had I thought of further questions after having left, that he would be happy to accommodate. Dr Adhiya is a personable senior consultant with exceptional people skills & a real sense of empathy with the patient. Most importantly, Dr Adhiya listened to me to understand more about what the context of my visit, what had prompted it and any tests which were needed. Dr Adhiya was very thorough with the explanation of the tests which were required. He was able to make these tests happen in a very short period of time and confirm the results in a clear and jargon-free manner. Truly appreciated.I would recommend Dr Adhya without hesitation and, should I need a cardiologist further down the line I will be happy to see Dr Adhya again.
I went through a pretty terrible time when I found out I had a leaky heart valve which was later confirmed as heart disease. Shaumik was brilliant me took calls from me at anytime of the day or night and visited my in hospital to check I was recovering. I am on medication now for the rest of my life but feel I finally have the answers to my condition. I would recommend Shaumik to any patent.. male aged 43.
I found Dr Adhya to be very approachable and understanding, he listened and spoke to me with in a kind and caring manner. Explained everything in detail and reassured me.
Dr Adhya made me feel comfortable with him immediately, listened to me while he read the ECG results I brought, and showed on the graph where the heart rate fluctuated. I came for further clarification and Dr Adhya gave it.
I found Dr Adhya to be pleasant & kind upon meeting him. He was gentle and thorough with the examination and very informative with the results of my tests of which I left the follow up consultation happy.
I would start by saying how apprehensive I was which I guess is understandable when going to have a potential cardiac issue investigated. Dr Adhya was incredibly thorough and whilst there was no immediate or obvious signs of an issue still arranged for me to wear a 7 day ECG monitor to get a full and thorough picture of my heart rhythm and eliminate any concerns. His whole demeanour just gave me confidence and reassurance throughout which I was and indeed am incredibly grateful for. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Adhya to anyone who has cause to be seen by a cardiologist.
Dr Adhya was extremely helpful. He had a friendly and approachable nature and he listen to all of my concerns. He took great care to address all of my questions and was able to clear up a lit of my concerns. Very grateful to have seen Dr Adhya.
Dr Adhya is very knowledgable and helpful . Always has time to listen . I’ve seen him twice now and would highly recommend him

I found Dr Adhya to be very Personable, gave clear explanations and answered my questions. I would recommend him and if needed would be happy to use his services again.
Dr Adhya was professional and friendly. I had two consultations with him, during both of which he discussed my condition, and gave his advice, clearly. He allowed me time to explain my own concerns, answered all my queries and talked over the possible future options with a welcome combination of understanding and common sense. I would not hesitate to go back to him for any follow up consultation or treatment. He was a jolly nice chap!
The consultation and testing was very thorough and Dr Shaumik was very polite and approachable.
Excellent service,informative & helpful.
Very helpful, listened and provided relevant tests to reassure me. Did not make me feel stupid when I was explaining what was happening. Would highly recommend.
Dr Adhya has a great nature that makes you feel relaxed and cared for. He spent time explaining what are usually medical terms that the majority of us would not understand so that I fully understood. When you have an appointment where there could be a problem with your heart he is exactly the sort of Doctor you need.
It was good to be listened to and all that I said was considered. Appointment and tests completed at a time that was convenient to me and conducted by caring staff.
Lovely consultant, listened to my somewhat lengthy medical history attentively and did not rush me out the door. He suggested some tests which I am currently undergoing. I found it very reassuring that Dr Adhya had an understanding of Hypermobility and I would definitely recommend him.
I will start with the easy part, Mr Adhya is exemplary. To contextualise that statement my introduction was a result of a serious cardiac even in South America (where I was treated very well, but in preparation for repatriation). On my return I consulted Mr Adhya as to treatment. I’m an exacting individual, a Military background in elite activities, a subsequently extreme exercise regime and a desire to remain at the same fitness level. At this time I was very concerned about my heart health because it determines everything I had ever achieved. Mr Adhya was professional yet personable, he was understanding whilst also being realistic. However above all else he provided the robust and realistic confidence in the procedure he would conduct to treat my condition. It is now two years on and I am more pleased, more humble and eternally grateful for the person I consider a friend rather than a life changing specialist. Thank you.
Dr Adhya made me feel welcome and comfortable immediately, was very clear and informative, thorough and knowledgeable. All my concerns were dealt with totally during the consultation. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a consultant.
I went to see Dr Adhya for a second opinion regarding my chest pain, given my family heart and high cholesterol history. He listened to me very carefully , reviewed angiogram and previous test results. Also he recommended a number of tests before making any decision about my medications. This was very important for me. I would recommend Dr Adhya for his professionalism and approach.
Outstanding - Spoke in layman's terms so that I understood everything, which, was both very reassuring and demonstrated perspective. Listened and then offered a very balanced a very sensible approach with the advice given which could fit in easily within my lifestyle. Incredibly knowledgeable, professional, kind with an excellent bedside manner. Punctual and gave his time very generously which again, was both through and incredibly reassuring. All 'next steps' executed timely and efficiently My consultation was 24 hours after my initial phone call and I was given an evening appointment which was very convenient for me. Thoroughly and wholeheartedly recommended
Really nice, friendly, and very engaging and put me at ease when I was nervous. He was very informative and provided good advice.
Extremely efficient, I was seen straight away with no waiting time. Everything was very clearly explained to me in a clear and concise manner. Mr Adhya was very professional and personable.
Dr Adhya has been friendly, helpful and professional throughout my entire experience. He listened to me and took my concerns seriously, making sure I knew all the details that would put me at ease. He is knowledgeable and explains things in a way that everyone can understand. I would gladly be treated by him again (although health-wise I hope I don't have to!)
Very professional and thorough. I feel I'm finally on the way to getting some answers after all these years. Dr Adhya listened well and I didn't feel rushed.
Dr. Adhya gave excellent care dealing with and operating on my heart condition. I have found Dr. Adyha to be professional at all times and would completely endorse him as a doctor. I am pleased to report my condition since my operation has been elimated and this is attributed to Dr. Adyhas skill as a surgeon.
Everything I expected. Nothing like the NHS!
Dr.Adyha provides an efficient and caring service in his capacity as consultant cardiologist. His clear explanations and effective treatment have helped me immensely with my own medical needs. Moreover, Dr.Adyha has demonstrated an accommodating side to his practice and is always ready to make himself available for the sake of his patients. I can recommend him to you without reservation.
